2:7 - Robert Lorenz Residence
802 E Harrison
Robert & Ella (Shoop) Lorenz had this new home built during the summer and fall of 1896.  A long-time Kirksville grocer, Robert came to the US from his native Germany at age 17 and arrived in Kirksville 3 years later (1870).  The couple along with their children, and possibly a son-in-law, are standing among the ice-damaged trees on their front lawn after the January 23, 1897 ice storm.
